Mayor Sarno Issues Statement on the Passing of MLK Family Services President and CEO Ronn Johnson

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno states, “I am so very sorry to hear about the passing of MLK Family Services President and CEO Ronn Johnson – ‘he was taken away from all of us way to early.’ My sympathy, thoughts, prayers and encouragement go out to Ronn’s wife Donna, daughter Brianna, son Ronn Jr., family and friends. Ronn was a friend and a well-respected community leader in youth development, family services, addressing disability need challenges and food insecurity issues, especially for our senior citizens. Ronn and his family’s landmark initiative is ‘The Brianna Fund’, which I have proudly attended and donated to for a number of years. Named after his daughter, this initiative of love and caring has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to aid numerous individuals and families faced with disability challenges to not only get by, but more importantly thrive and achieve, as proudly exhibited by Ronn’s daughter Brianna. Ronn, we worked together on a number of community initiatives, and you will be sorely missed. Again, you were taken away from us way to early. Rest in peace my friend. Your legacy will live on through all of us.”
